We all know the Met Gala is one of the biggest red carpets of the entire year.

Pretty much every A-list star you can think of attends the annual event in glamorous gowns, the finest tuxedos, and couture creations.

But…what exactly IS the Met Gala? Like, what happens after the celebs strut their stuff for the hordes of photographers?

That’s what Carson Daly wanted to know and earlier this morning, Producer Angie filled him in on all the major details.

The black-tie soiree is held every year to raise money for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York. In 2014, organizers pulled in $14.5 million, which is pretty easy when you charge $30,000 per person!

Do you happen to have $30K lying around? Well, you can’t just purchase a ticket. There’s a waiting list to get on the invite list and it’s based on your own achievements, beauty, and whether or not you’re “trending” in pop culture at the moment. Vogue’s Anna Wintour has the final say over who is invited and allowed to attend.

What happens at the gala is a bit of a mystery. Posting to social media inside of the event was banned last year. According to the New York Times, there’s a receiving line where guests can say hello to the hosts. There’s also a costume exhibit where A-listers drink cocktails and get a little bit of culture. Finally, there’s a dinner and some sort of entertainment.

So, there you have it! The more you know…
